When selling your home what offers the biggest return on investment? It’s Paint. But what the popular trending colors and which paint colors are going to sell your home?
Within the first 30 seconds of entering your home, buyers are forming a decision on whether they like your home or not. And sometimes buyers will decide against a house purely due to its paint colors. Why? because the majority of buyers are visual people and they have no imagination. They are unable to visualize what your walls will look like with a different paint color on them. You want buyers to feel like they can truly move right in and just unpack. Updating your Spring Texas’s home paint color is one of the cheapest and highest return on investment improvement you can make.
The popular and trending colors are the grays, beiges, and greiges. I’m a Sherwin Williams fan. Always have been a fan of Sherwin Williams paint and probably always will be. I like the quality of their paint and their numerous convenient store locations. Sherwin Williams’s also has a huge selection of colors which sometimes makes it difficult and almost nearly impossible to select a paint color.
What are the best paint colors for selling your house? In the beiges, its Accessible Beige and China Doll. I like Accessible Beige because it goes very well with browns and also gray tones. Accessible Beige is actually the color I have in the majority of the rooms in my house. I like China Doll because it blends well with the browns and the tans. If there’s no gray tones in the house, China Doll is a better choice than Accessible Beige. Anew gray is my favorite grayish color. Anew gray is what i have painted on the walls in my study/home office. It has warm under tones and it’s a little bit more on the cool side. Anew Gray is also the paint color in my primary bedroom. It’s a little bit darker than some of the other gray colors so you have to really take into consideration your natural light situation. I really like Anew Gray because the darker color makes the white baseboards “pop”. My favorite greige is Agreeable Gray. It’s a mix of Gray with some beige mixed in. It also has some warm natural undertones.
When detemining which paint color is the best is the best for your walls, you want to take into consideration the colors in your carpet, tile, wood, and baseboards. You want the paint to compliment the colors of the other materials and not to clash with them.
Sherwin Williams paints are a little more expensive than other companies but I think the quality is there and so is the value. Here’s a pro tip for you: Buy your paint around the major holidays, such as memorial day, 4th of July, and labor day. During these times of the year, Sherwin Williams runs sales on their paints. You can pick up their quality paint for 30% to 40% off their retail price.
If you’re wondering what finish to choose, I recommend a flat or matte finish. The flat finish will hide imperfections in the walls and it will absorb all of the light as there’s no sheen to it.

Jill has all the qualifications you could possibly want and need in a realtor. She is a fulltime agent and there for you 100% of the time. After meeting with her to discuss our home listing, Jill came over and spent almost an entire day helping stage our home. She went to each room in our home making certain every area looked great! She even brought over a couple of carloads of her own staging items! After getting the house picture perfect, she scheduled a top of the line professional photographer. This photographer took beautiful photos of our home including drone shots of our outdoor area and pool. The first weekend of our listing Jill hosted an open house. Within ten days we were able to get a contract for the full asking price on our home. The buyers needed to move into our home quickly, so Jill worked with the buyers realtor and we were able to close the entire deal in 21 days! We were completely blown away by all the things Jill did to take care of our home sale. She is absolutely the best, no doubt about it!!
